Description

Undoubtedly one of the finest biscuit boxes we have had, perfect for display (the quality is outstanding), biscuits or even ice for your home bar.
Made from silver plate the box is made in the from of a traditional coopered barrel with an all over engine-turned decoration, the "hoops" created from raised beaded decoration.
The hinged lid comes complete with a working key, unusually, you move the key anti-clockwise to unlock. The centre of the lid has an engraved impressive armorial crest, clearly this piece belonged to an important family.
The underside is signed by the London silversmith, George Richmond Collis of 130 Regent Street, London. Being such a special piece, it is lucky enough to have been struck with and English design registration diamond shaped lozenge, which allows us to date this design to 12th March 1866.
Exquisite in every way and in excellent condition measuring 6 1/2" x 6 1/2".
